Nod for

second

fuel stop

By ROBYN BRISTOW

NPD is building asecond 24­hour fuel

station in Rangiora on aprime site on

the north side of town.

It has been given consent by the

Waimakariri District Council to build

and operate an unmanned station on

the corner of Ashley and Edward

streets, on asite which was formerly a

car sales yard.

There will be five double­sided

pumps and two underground fuel

storage tanks on the 1240­square­metre

site.

Planning officer Ian Carstens, in a

report to planning manager Matt

Bacon, who approved the application,

said vehicles will use both Ashley and

Edwards streets to enter and leave the

service station.

Mr Carstens says in the report the

anticipated environmental effects ‘‘are

considered less than minor’’, and the

proposal would not have an adverse

effect on the efficient and effective

function of the adjoining roads, or the

safety of road users.

The signage would be in keeping

with the existing character of the area,

and noise levels were not expected to

breach the permitted noise standards

in the District Plan.

Only down­facing lights would be

used under the canopy for forecourt

illumination.

Development work on the site can be

done only from Monday to Saturday

between 7am and 6pm.

Nelson­based NPD already has a

fuel station on the southern side of

the town at Southbrook, which has

been operating since September

2019.

Oxford doctor Richard

Clinghan was inspired to write

his book, Jenny and the Eddies,

afterNew Zealand’s 2019

measles epidemic.

The comic bookabout viruses

and vaccinespromotesvaccine

safety and confronts conspiracy

theorists who oppose their use.

‘‘I wanted to help reassure

concerned parents in anonconfrontational

manner, whilst

providing vaccine­supportive

parents withmoreinformation

to help them to standupfor

truthand confront conspiracy

theorists,’’ he says.

Richard, whowas born in

Northern Ireland and is now a

general practitioner at the

Oxford Community Health

Centre, initially wanted to

create abook thatwas colourful

and bright for his waiting room.

However, as work

progressed,hebegantohope

the book couldhaveawider

audience.

The book idea came to

Richard duringexercise on a

treadmillatthe gym.

He also did the illustrations

for thebookproject,which took

18 months to complete.

‘‘I waspretty good at artat

school but Igave it up for

science to becomeadoctor.

‘‘Writing and illustratingthe

book was the fun part.’’

Marketingand promotion is

much tougher. ‘‘The marketing

part is incredibly hard, and the

worldofpublishingisbrutal,’’

he saidduring arecenttalk at

the KaiapoiLibrary.

The book is self­published,

printed in New Zealand, and is

alreadyattracting good reviews

on his Facebookpage,

includingone from John

Gillies, aretired physician who

is also an artist.

Sheep rustlers suspected

By ROBYN BRISTOW

AClarkville landowner is urging

people to watch for rustlers.

Howard Williams, who has aproperty

in North Eyre Road, Swannanoa, said

he discovered two prime hoggets shut

in his cattle yards last Thursday.

Mr Williams had gone to check his

lambing ewes at 9.30pm and suspects

he, or someone earlier, had disturbed

the would­be thief.

He does not normally leave sheep

near the yards at this time of year,

having been the victim of rustlers three

times in the past four years in the leadup

to Christmas.

‘‘I usually keep the sheep away from

the yards, but it’s awee way to

Christmas, and this mob was in a

holding paddock near the yards.

‘‘They have been run into the yards.

‘‘It would appear they know my

movements, and it could be the same

people returning each year,’’ Mr

Williams says.

If anyone has information that may

help identify the rustler, Mr Williams

asks them to call the police, who are

aware of the incident.

Armistice Day service

draws agood turnout

By DAVID HILL

Last week’s Armistice Day commemoration

service provided the first opportunity for

the Rangiora RSA to gather with the

community this year.

Rangiora RSA president Ian Thompson

was pleasedwith the turnout at the

Rangiora Cenotaph on Wednesday,

November 11.

AnzacDay services in April had been

cancelled because of Covid­19.

Armistice Day marks the trucethat came

into effect at 11am on November 11, 1918,

and saw soldierslay downtheir arms,

putting an end to fighting on the western

frontduring World War 1.

‘‘Many never returned and others were

deeply affected.’’

Mr Gordon recalled his experience of

attending the 100th anniversary

commemorations of the Battle of

Passchendaele in Belgiumin2017.

At least seven Waimakaririsoldierslost

their lives at Passchendaele in 1917, he

said.

‘‘I will neverforget the hospitality of the

local people. The Belgians have not

forgotten.’’

We will remember them ... Rangiora

In brief

Cafe closes

Kingsford Kitchen Cafe, at

Southbrook, Rangiora,has closed

and is on the market. However, its

manufacturing and cateringkitchen

next door remains in full swing, a

Facebook post says.The closure

comes because of the ‘‘detrimental

effect’’ofCovid­19 on the business.

‘‘The business has been listed for

like to thank all our wonderfulstaff

and loyal clienteleduring this

It is exciting to have the opportunityto

engage with MPs, the public, businesses

developing sound environmental policy.

It is my viewthat successful economic

and environmental policy can and must

work together to provide acleaner,

greener and brighter future for all New

Zealanders.

Our naturalenvironment will be

critical to our economic recoveryfrom

the worst recession our nation has seen.

It is obvious that New Zealanders want

acleaner and greenerfuture. We can

achieve this by usinganapproach to

climate changethat is practical and

science­based.

Simple steps such as encouraging the

uptake of more electric vehicles, creating

more nationalparks and great walks,and

investing further in the technologysector,

will go along way to reducing our impact

on the environmentwhile encouraging

economic growth.

Akey area of focus in termsofclimate

Think ahead with alcohol

It is in everyone’s interests for local

events to run to plan.

However, there are various tasks and

deadlines to meet, which means

organisers can easily overlook applying

for aspecial licence in atimely manner.

December through to March is

traditionally abusy time in the Hurunui

district for events.

Organisers would be wise to carry out

some early planning, particularly if the

event requires aspecial licence to

supply alcohol.

The Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act

2012 requires that aspecial licence must

be lodged at least 20 working days before

the event. The time allows the

application to be assessed by the police,

the medical officer of health, and the

licensing inspector before the

determination by the licensing

committee.

The act defines the period between

December 20 and January 15 as nonworking

days. Therefore, applications

for events early in 2021 must have their

applications lodged well in advance to

meet the 20 working day requirement.

This can easily catch organisers out as

it means that an event held on or before

January 18, 2021, should be lodged no

later than November 20 this year.

district could lookinthe future.

They realise that not everyone wants

to go to meetings or be involved with

groups. Some havehealth or disability

issues, are not confident, or don’t have

transport. Often, they simply don’t

knowwhat is available. Othersdon’t

liketoask.

The WaimakaririDistrictCouncil has

agreat pamphletcalled Staying

Socially Connected,which lists

activitiesthroughout the community.

Theyare available at libraries,

service centres, the Citizens’ Advice

Bureau, or by contactingRachel

Thorntonatthe council’s community

teamon0800 965 468 or by emailat

rachel.thornton@wmk.govt.nz.

Social connection belongstoall of us.

We humansare social animalsmeant to

liveincommunities. Igrew up in a

household of three generations,and we

knewall our neighbours.

My husbandand Iare fortunate to

liveonalifestyle blockwith great

neighbourswho support eachother.

There are families in the

neighbourhood, too.One did our

shopping during lockdown.

Amember of our Age­friendly

Advisory Group livesinaretirement

village. They have what he calls cabinfever

get­togethers.

On Sunday afternoons in the winter,

severalofthe residents meet for

afternoon tea. It can be as simple as

that.

It takes an efforttobea“community”,

yet the rewardsare great. How many

people in your street or area do you

know?

The end of the year is agreat time for

community get­togethers; perhaps a

potluckpicnic in apark, for example.

We can do this in New Zealand, where

Christmas is in summertime.Have fun.

community members planning an event

as we want to assist you as much as

possible to avoid disappointment.

If alate application is lodged —that is,

fewer than 20 working days before he

event —the applicant must make a

written request to the district licensing

committee providing avalid reason for

lateness, which adds another step in the

process.

We appreciate and understand that

sometimes there are valid reasons, but

often alate application is received for

an event planned and scheduled well in

advance.

My advice is to plan and prepare early

to meet the licensing requirements.

In the uncertain Covid­19 climate, we

appreciate that sometimes planning can

be curtailed by government­imposed

restrictions under the alert­level

regime.

However, early planning for licensing

requirements is appreciated, with the

knowledge that postponements or

cancellations are “on the cards”. On

these occasions it can be worked

through by speaking with the licensing

staff at the Hurunui District council, or

by emailing licensing@hurunui.govt.nz.

As the festive season edges closer, I

urge you to consider safe and successful

event­planning.

Cheviotishome to the best littlerest­home

in the South Island.

For the fifth year in arow, Cheviot Rest

Home has won the AgedAdvisor Best Aged

Care Facility up to 40 beds.

It is the only facility in New Zealand to

achieve this milestone.

Winners of this People’s Choice Award

competition are based on independent

reviews and opinions.

Sue Coleman and her husband, Steve,

have ownedthe home for 20 years.

Sue saysthe recipe for success for the

14­bed home is simple. ‘‘Weare asmall,

intimate and personalised rest­home, and

the staffingisstable,local and know allthe

residents really well.’’

Family and visitors are givenaform to

fill out as they leave, seeking afrank

assessmentofwhat the service is like at

the home. ‘‘Theydon’t givethe form to me.

They fill it in and send it straight backto

Aged Advisor in Christchurch,sothey can

be really honestaboutwhat they are

saying.’’

It has 12 trained and qualified staff, with

aregistered nurse available 24/7.

Although the rest­home is small,itis

homelyand offers home­cooked meals

with vegetables from its own garden.

Sue says owning asmall home has many

positives, but thereare also some

downsides, such as all the rules,

regulations and compliance involved.

However, on the positive side, the home

enables localstoremainintheir

community and continue to takepart in

activities and organisations in the town.

‘‘Justbecausethey are here doesn’t stop

them from being partoftheircommunity.’’

But knowing residents so well can be

difficultwhen onepassesaway.‘‘It leaves

ahuge hole because you have got to know

them so well and their family as well.’’

working with

Hurunui’s Broomfield

School pupils to

create amural for the

school.

The children visited

the NEST workshop

in Amberley for two

weeks from the

beginning of this

month to work on the

mural, which was

designed by Laura.

Each child created

atriangle board using

avariety of paint

effects and

techniques under

Laura’s tuition. The

triangles will be

arranged to create a

landscape mural

which will then be

installed on awall at

the school.

‘‘The children had

loads of fun learning

different painting

techniques and

effects,’’ Laura said.

‘‘It was exciting to

see NEST bustling

with such enthusiastic

and creative energy.

‘‘The mural will be a

great showcase of the

community

involvement that

forms part of the

NEST Arts Collective

ethos.’’

Unexpected career ... Emma Higgins is enjoying her career advising the dairy industry.

PHOTO: DAVID HILL

Emma succumbs to

the lure of agriculture

By DAVID HILL

Growing up on asheep and beef farm,

Emma Higgins never imagined she would

have acareer advising dairy farmers.

The RaboResearch dairy analyst had

ambitions to be alawyer while growing

up on the family farm.

‘‘I always thoughtIwould neverbe

involved in agriculture. Istudied law at

Canterbury (University) and got ajob in

Wellington working with corporate

clients and it was fun for afew years, but

Ifelt the draw to comeback to

agriculture.

‘‘So Iended up working with cows in

North Canterbury —‘the dark side’,as

my dad put it.’’

Her job drawsonher legal skills and

research skills, as she seekstomake

sense of the global dairy markets and

dairy issues, and report back to

Rabobank and its clients,dairy farmers

and the media.

The job, as the only New Zealandbased

dairy analystfor RaboResearch, a

division of Rabobank, requires alot of

travel.

‘‘In ordinary times, outsideofCovid, I

travel the length of the countryvisiting

farmers and going on farm, and talk to

processors, trying to get afeel for what

New Zealand’s production looks like.

‘‘I coverthe New Zealandside of

things, but Ihave colleagues around the

worldwho cover the dairy industry in

theirregions,soweput it all together and

see what the supply and demand of milk

around the world looks like.’’

It means Rabobank can predictwhat

the farmgate milk price might look like

for Kiwifarmers, though it is ‘‘quite

challenging and complex’’ to get it right,

she says.

The conservative predictionatthe

moment is $6.35 per kilogramofmilk

solids, but alot depended on the

fluctuations in the global dairy trade over

the next few months and how much

demand there is in China.

‘‘There has beenvery strong buying in

Chinaacross most of this year.

‘‘We are seeing China’s localmilk

productionrise, so there is aconcern if

they do decide to change their buying

strategy, it will presentsome risk.

‘‘We think their stock levels are at the

highest they havebeen since 2014,soit’s

unusual.’’

New Zealand’s success in managing the

outbreak of Covid­19 means it is seen as

‘‘a safeand reliable market’’, whichadds

‘‘another layer to the provenance story’’

for Kiwi farmers ‘‘and that’s wherethe

opportunity lies’’,Emma says.

Environmentalregulations will also

have an impact, she says.

‘‘Change is needed, but the devilisin

the detail. We don’t argueagainst the

reform, but it’s about providing more

tools in the toolbox so they(farmers) can

meet their environmental obligations.’’

Adry summer also beckonsand, with

the La Ninaweatherpattern forecast in

North Canterbury, it willalso have an

impact.

Cows judged on farms

By DAVID HILL

Dairy cows on five North Canterbury

farms were put through their paces

during judging for last week’s

Canterbury A&P Association On­Farm

Dairy Competition.

Organiser Peter Gilbert was pleased

with the support for the competition,

organised after the New Zealand

Agricultural Show was cancelled

because of Covid­19. In all, 92 cattle from

11 farms were entered.

‘‘When we first came up with the idea,

Ihoped we would get 100 entries and

we’ve got 92, so I’m really pleased.

‘‘Over the last couple of years we’ve

had 50 to 60 dairy cattle entries, but it’s

been alittle bit difficult with

Mycoplasma bovis.

‘‘We’ve got two people who have never

shown at Canterbury before and a

couple of others who haven’t shown for a

long time.’’

Being judged on­farm was easier for

the farmers, as it was cheaper and, once

judging was finished, they could return

the cows to the paddock, Mr Gilbert says.

‘‘But it’s still quite alot work. They

still have to be prepared and clipped as

they would for the show. But Ithink most

exhibitors would prefer to be at the

show.’’

The breed winners and the supreme

champion dairy cattle winners were

announced at abarbecue on Friday

evening, providing amuch­needed

social get­together, but it wasn’t the

same as being at the show, Mr Gilbert

says.

Otorohanga farmer Corey Ferguson

came down to judge the dairy cattle and

was impressed. ‘‘We just came out of a

pretty strong show at Waikato and, from

what I’ve seen here so far, the quality is

on par.’’

Judging on­farm provided its

challenges, as the judge was unable to

see the top cows standing in the ring

together. But Mr Ferguson said he took

plenty of notes and was accompanied by

two photographers to help him

remember the top cows.

Another guest was Duncan Pipe, from

Waikato, who had organised on­farm

dairy cattle competition for the Waikato

A&P Show in 2018 and 2019.

The North Canterbury entrants

included Peter and Claire Hansen, of

Rangiora; Peter and Rhonda Sherriff, of

Ohoka; brothers John and Robbie

Wakelin, of Springbank, near Rangiora;

Graham and Nicky Stewart, of Waikuku;

and Ainsley Kreger­Price, of Rangiora.

Three generations of the Dalley family

turned out to play tennis for Scargill, in

North Canterbury, at arecent inter­club

fixture at Waiau.

Mum Jean Dalley, daughter, Jo Loe

and granddaughter Elsie Loe, aged 12,

made up nearly half the Scargill team.

All three contributed good wins for

Scargill, but Waiau held on for an overall

victory.

When the Dalley family moved from

Oxford to Hurunui, Jean continued her

tennis at the Willoughby Club.

The club was where her three girls —

Lynda, Jo and Karen —learnt the game.

Over the last 42 years, Jean and her

three daughters have all continued their

tennis, playing for the Willoughby,

Hawarden, Cheviot, Scargill and Kirwee

clubs.

They have also represented Hurunui

and Selwyn during representative

fixtures.

Jo now plays for Scargill, as do her

daughters Elsie and Josie. Jean, who is a

member of the Glenmark Presidents

Grade, also plays for Scargill when

needed.

Eldest daughter Lynda plays for

Cheviot, as do her two sons, while Karen

has hung up her racket for the time

being, but her three children all

continue to play in Kirwee.

New hub for charity

By DAVID HILL

Satisfy Food Rescue has secured more

space to meet agrowing need in the

community.

The food rescue organisation, founded

in 2014, has grown significantly this year.

It has now moved into its own

premises at 122 Williams Street,

Kaiapoi.

Previously, the group was based at

Kaiapoi Community Support.

The new space gives the organisation

the capacity to expand.

‘‘It was lovely to collaborate with

Kaiapoi Community Support and it’s

really sad to move,’’ chairwoman

Phillipa Hunt says.

‘‘But this new space is exciting.

‘‘The quantity of food we managed to

process in the (old) space we had was

just incredible, but this new space will

give us alot more scope.’’

The new premises provides 120 square

metres of warehouse space, plus an

80 sq mshop­front, as well as achiller

and walk­in freezer out back.

Over the last six years the group has

established relationships with

supermarkets, food retailers,

wholesalers and growers, rescuing more

than 320 tonnes of food.

The food is redistributed back into the

community via food banks throughout

North Canterbury and into

Christchurch.

The move to the new premises may be

temporary, Phillipa says, ‘‘because

there’s an exciting new space in the

pipeline’’. The Waimakariri District

Council is proposing anew community

hub as aregeneration project in next

year’s 2021/31 Long Term Plan, which

would include food security initiatives.

‘‘This new space gives us the

opportunity to work out what we need, so

the next space can be purpose­built to

meet our needs,’’ Phillipa says.

Many people sufferfrom

persistent gutproblemsincluding

stomach pain, loosebowels and

cramps, andhaven’t been ableto

findthe causeofthese issues or a

solutiontotheir discomfort.

Digestive or gutproblemscan

occurfromseveraldysfunctions

examinationofthe digestive

systemiscrucial to detectthese

issues.

Microbes such as bacteria,

fungi and parasites are wellknown

causes ofgut issues.

The bacteria Helicobacter pylori

can cause severe stomach pain and

ulcers. And the fungus Candida

Albicans is associated with chronic

gut problems such ascolic pain,

cramps and gas. Even worms such as

Ascaris are acommon cause of gut

problems.

Food sensitivities andallergies

arealsobehindmanygut problems.

And then thereare gutproblems

In December last year Council approved the use

of Council land in Rangiora, Kaiapoi, Oxford and

charging stations.

We have been working with Meridian Energy to

secure the first agreement for Rangiora and are

pleased to say work to install two EVcharging

The charging stations and car parks will be available

Aboil water notice was issued for the Cust Water

Following the discovery of E. coli during routine

place. At this stage it is considered the headworks

site is the most likely source.

We are carrying out adetailed assessment of

the tanks and wider system to identify any

potential faults or sources. We will continue daily

sampling at the source, the headworks and in the

reticulation, to test if water is clear of E. coli and

the chlorine is being effective.

ABid for Dog Park Funding

Oxford’s proposed dog park now has alocation but

whether or not the proposal will become areality

is to be decided on by asubmission tothe 2021-

31 Long Term Plan (LTP) for funding.

The Oaks Reserve came out top dog aer the

Board considered anumber of potential sites

for anoff-lead exercise area for dogs. Nestled in

behind the Oxford Cemetery, the reserve ticked a

number of boxes with area size, risk/safety to dogs

and other animals, proximity to users and land

ownership all adding to the mix.

With facilities already in Rangiora, Pegasus and

Kaiapoi, the Oxford community are eager to

see asimilar space locally for their own canine

companions.

Looking ahead, the Board want to ensure the

community can access and enjoy The Oaks

Reserve regardless of the LTPdecision. They have

previously agreed to develop asection of the

reserve through their General Landscaping Budget.

This will create amore usable area among the

towering oaks for recreation.
